A Deep and Meaningful Chat

Me: There’s some sort of chinwag going on upstairs on my bed.

Nell: What are you talking about?

Me: Dave, Harriet and Poppy are having a Deep and Meaningful Chat.

Nell: I doubt it. Chats are light discussions. They’re never Deep or Meaningful. They’re probably discussing the picnic.

Me: What picnic? This isn’t picnic weather.

Nell: The one for our journey to Windsor Castle tomorrow.

Me: You’re having a full afternoon tea.

Nell: We’re being collected at 11am and we won’t arrive until gone 3pm so we’ll definitely need lunch.

Me: You could stop off somewhere for lunch I suppose.

Nell: And risk being late? No. A picnic is a much better idea. A few quiches, some soup in a flask and a lemon tart for dessert with a little clotted cream should do the trick.

Me: Are you sure you want to be eating soup and clotted cream in The Queen’s car?

Nell: Good point. We don’t want David getting it on his tie.

Me: I didn’t know Dave was wearing a tie.

Nell: Of course he is. You can’t have tea with The Queen without wearing a tie.

Me: Are you wearing a tie then?

Nell: Certainly not. Harriet and I are wearing our pearls.

Me: Yes. Silly me. Has Poppy finished decorating the cake?

Nell: She has but we’re not allowed to see it. She says she wants it to be a surprise.

Me: That sounds worrying. Are Henry and Horst wearing ties?

Nell: Yes.

Me: Won’t they get in their way? I mean they are very low on the ground if you know what I mean.

Nell: Firstly, Henry and Horst won’t be on the ground. They will be on David’s top hat. And secondly they are wearing bow ties. Do keep up.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
